Bobbi Baugh


For Bobbi Baugh’s 2nd solo exhibition at Arts on Douglas, she explores the concept of home through a series of bold, colorful mixed-media quilts. The crux of this body of work lies in the idea that “We all come from someplace. That place helps to shape us and is part of who we are,” explains Baugh. “In the process of making of each piece, I pause to look at the work and begin to ask it questions. The questions are simple but important, spoken by an inner child, a small voice looking for meaning. Who lives in this house? How do you build a house? What’s inside a house? What happens if the houses fade away? What happens when the people leave? The answers to the questions become the title of the work.”

As a whole, Bobbi’s exhibition is an imaginative depiction of personal narratives and lively investigations woven together across multiple layers.  Her creative process and combinations of materials are both intricate and complex, offering the perfect conduit for exploring this theme.  While her work is personal and expressive, Baugh simultaneously allows viewers to reexamine and explore their own interpretations, sentiments and anecdotes that surround the idea of home.

Bobbi Baugh holds a Master’s Degree in Humanities and Education and Bachelor's Degrees in Studio Art and Speech Communication from Stetson University in DeLand, FL.
